Size & Design: 2020 Subaru Legacy vs 2020 Toyota Camry

With 100.4 cubic feet of passenger volume, the 2020 Toyota Camry provides about as much passenger space as the compact Subaru Impreza, rather than the midsize 2020 Subaru Legacy! Instead, the 2020 Subaru Legacy provides 105.5 cubic feet of passenger space. As a result, you get a little more legroom in both rows and more front-seat headroom in the Subaru Legacy. There's more cargo space in the trunk of the 2020 Subaru Legacy compared to the 2020 Toyota Camry, too. When you want a midsize car that's sized just right, you're sure to prefer the spacious Subaru Legacy.

Technology: 2020 Subaru Legacy vs 2020 Toyota Camry

Both cars provide similar functionality when it comes to keeping you connected, informed and entertained, but the 2020 Subaru Legacy makes it all look even more modern!

But on the 2020 Toyota Camry, the system comes with a single 7" screen at the entry level. You can also upgrade to an 8" screen with navigation as an upgrade, but the 2020 Subaru Legacy has got them both beat! The entry-level 2020 Subaru Legacy gets a pair of 7" touchscreens so you can keep more settings and information at your fingertips. And when you upgrade to a more premium trim level, you can get a gorgeous 11.6" touchscreen oriented vertically in the center stack that's even more powerful and intuitive to use.

Technology: 2020 Subaru Legacy vs 2020 Toyota Camry

To be fair, the 2020 Toyota Camry makes a little bit more power than the 2020 Subaru Legacy, whether you're comparing standard engines or their more powerful upgrades. But it's what each vehicle does with that power that sets them apart. The 2020 Toyota Camry features standard front-wheel drive, but every 2020 Subaru Legacy is all-wheel drive. That means power is sent to the wheels that have the most grip at any given moment, so wet weather and unpaved roads won't hold you back. You also get better handling performance. While the 2020 Toyota Camry is the rare midsize sedan with an all-wheel drive option, it'll still cost you $1,400 extra as an option.

Further improving handling and feel, the 2020 Subaru Legacy enjoys a BOXER® engine design, which is wide and flat in shape, so it can be placed low and deep in the engine bay. This lowers the weight of the car, so it feels balanced and level for a smooth, serene drive. The 2020 Toyota Camry offers only V-shape and inline engines.

Safety: 2020 Subaru Legacy vs 2020 Toyota Camry

When it comes to safety, it's not easy to beat Subaru, but the 2020 Toyota Camry certainly comes close. Both cars earned the most exclusive safety award given out by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety: 2020 Top Safety Pick+. And when it comes to driver assistance, they're extremely comparable here too! Both cars lead this class and come with features that are optional extras on many segment rivals like automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist. Furthermore, both cars even offer optional upgrades like rear cross traffic alert with reverse automatic braking.

There is one advantage of the 2020 Subaru Legacy over its Toyota rival: The DriverFocus® distraction mitigation system that monitors the driver's eyes and attention, and can detect a drowsy or distracted driver. A driver attention monitor isn't available on the 2020 Toyota Camry at all.
